About Julie Aldred
We share our lives between the UK and this sunny and special corner of France. We first purchased a property in the Gard in 2003 and were overwhelmed by the variety the area has to offer. Here, we can indulge our love of food and wine with the fabulous gastronomic restaurants, the fresh market produce and endless wine domaines. We can sail on the Med, walk or ski in the Cevennes (or the Alps a little further away), cycle around the vineyards and visit the pretty historic villages or the rich cultural sites closeby, such as Nimes, Uzès, Le Pont du Gard, Avignon, Montpellier and Arles.
Julie Aldred purchased this Apartment in 2005
Why Julie Aldred chose Vézénobres
The village of Vézénobres is credited with being a 'Village de Caractère' and 'Un des Plus Beaux Villages du Gard' and it is difficult not to instantly fall in love with the place. The house on Rue de L'Horloge was a 'coup de coeur' as soon as we saw it. A stunning 3 storey stone house close to the village centre, a short stroll away from the square with the fabulous restaurant, a lovely bar/bistro and the boulangerie. The 2 apartments 'L'Hirondelle' (for 2 people) and 'Les Figuiers' (for 2-4 people) retain all the character of an older stone property, whilst offering comfortable and well-equipped accommodation in a perfect location to explore all the area has to offer. There are stunning views from each apartment and the shared splash pool and rear terrace (and the private balcony in L'Hirondelle) are ideal for cooling off and putting your feet up with a nice glass of chilled rosé!
What makes this Apartment unique
An ideal location for exploring the many and varied sites and activities - from the the rich cultural cities of Nimes, Avignon and Arles, the Côtes du Rhône and Provence to the East, Montpellier, the Cevennes mountains and luscious Pic Saint Loup wine region to the West and the beaches of the Med and the Camargue to the South. Vézénobres is a unique medieval village perched on a hillside, proudly overlooking the stunning surroundings. There can be fewer places which allow the visitor the chance to absorb the french lifestyle in such a fabulous location. 'L'Hirondelle' and 'Les Figuiers' are located on Rue de L'Horloge - a short stroll away from the village square. The splash pool and rear terrace and the stunning views from the front windows are rare in a village property. The property has excellent reviews and attracts guests back time after time.
